COASTAL AREAS

Climate Resilience Studies in Coastal Areas

The impacts of climate change on islands and coastal areas are determined by rising sea levels and extreme climate episodes.

The climate information available in most coastal areas comes from global models used for climate projections by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), and it has very insufficient spatial resolution (level of detail) for analysing specific problems.

On the basis of our experience, and by applying different methodologies, we combine the data from global models with satellite information, and marine models (swell models, hydrodynamic models) to identify signs of climate change on coastal variables such as temperature, sea level and storm surge.

This type of study is essential for master plans of coastal infrastructure adaptation and for analysing the impact on natural areas and coastal ecosystems, which in turn often act as natural protection systems against such impact.

RESILIENCE OF LAND INFRASTRUCTURE

Land infrastructure which is being planned today will have a useful life of several decades, and therefore must be designed for a changing climate. The adaptation of such infrastructure (roads, airports, canals, etc.) to climate change requires climate studies to have been previously conducted.

Analysis of the Impact of Climate Change on Supply Chains

RESILIENCE IN SUPPLY CHAINS

A changing climate has a strong chance of influencing supply chains of the activities of industries ranging from insurance, energy and the mining industry to food and beverages, tourism and the retail industry, which can be clearly affected by climatic phenomena.
